Elbeyli, Turkey/Beirut: Turkey and its rebel allies opened up a new line of attack in northern Syria today as Turkish tanks crossed the frontier from Kilis province, making a western thrust in an operation to sweep terrorists from its border.
The incursion from Kilis - which has been repeatedly targeted by Islamic State rockets from inside Syria over the last year - coincided with a push elsewhere in the region by the Turkish-backed Syrian rebels, who seized several villages further east from the Sunni hardliners.
